The democratic party, historically documented as the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, and zero votes for the civil rights act, has been able through entitlements to convince the black community they are looking out for their welfare. Every four years, the Democrats have received very high vote counts from black communities. In cities with large urban areas, the GOP had not had real opportunities to win local elections. Examples would be Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
The 2020 campaigns have already been playing the race card for months. There has been a concerted effort to label President Trump as a racist, regardless of any evidence, to keep the black vote in line with previous elections. On top of Race, the DNC has directed the media, donors, and entertainment outlets to promote the idea that President Trump has character flaws such as sexually assaulting women, homophobia, Islamophobia, Xenophobia, etc.
Joe Biden has tried to make “character” as much of an issue in the 2020 election as anything else—having argued that unlike Trump, he is a man of upstanding character. But what kind of character must one have to praise a former leader in the Ku Klux Klan, as Joe Biden has on many occasions? In fact, ten years ago today, Joe Biden praised Robert Byrd, the former Ku Klux Klan “Exalted Cyclops,” and referred to him as a “friend,” “mentor,” and “guide.”
He has lauded South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond — who Biden called “one of my closest friends” — and Sen. Jesse Helms of North Carolina, who Biden worked with on legislation to prevent court-ordered desegregation busing. He has also expressed admiration for Sens. John Stennis, James O. Eastland and Herman Talmadge. He has even praised George Wallace, an Alabama governor and segregationist presidential candidate.
Joe Biden launched his 2020 campaign based on that Charlottesville lie, saying that the president called neo-Nazis and white nationalists “very fine people,” and he has said it on numerous other occasions since then. Joel Pollack of Breitbart News even confronted the Democratic presumptive nominee, in person, and pointed out to him on his cell phone that Trump condemned the hate groups, but Biden still repeats the lie.`
Everyone, who wants to know, acknowledges Joe’s close relationship with racist politicians from Southern states.
Biden has a long history of being cozy with segregationists. In 2019, he invoked not one, but two segregationist Democrats (Senator James Eastland of Mississippi and Senator Herman Talmadge of Georgia) he had good working relationships with during his time in the U.S. Senate. Several of his former primary rivals called him out for this.
“Vice President Biden’s relationships with proud segregationists are not the model for how we make America a safer and more inclusive place for black people, and for everyone,” said Cory Booker. Biden even demanded an apology from Booker for his comments on Juneteenth.
“It’s never OK to celebrate segregationists. Never,” said Elizabeth Warren.
Kamala Harris accused Biden of “coddl[ing] the reputations of segregationists.”
An old video clip of Joe Biden shows when as a US senator he referred to members of a KKK-affiliated group as being filled with “many fine people” during a 1993 Senate hearing.
In the course of the Senate confirmation hearing for then-Supreme Court nominee, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Biden began talking by referring to a speech that was made on the Senate floor by Senator Howell Heflin (D-AL), who was showing his support of Senator Carol Moseley Braun’s (D-IL) efforts to deny the renewal of a Confederate flag design patent to the Klan-affiliated group.
“I, too, heard that speech and, for the public listening to this, the senator made a very moving and eloquent speech. As a son of the Confederacy, acknowledging that it was time to change and yield to a position that Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun raised on the Senate floor, not granting a federal charter to an organization made up of many fine people who continue to display the Confederate flag as a symbol,” Biden said during the 1993 hearing.
The real Joe Biden has given way to the wishes of the Democratic establishment, and with this submission is being carried along, protected, and past hidden by those who know better. The Joe Biden accused of sexual assault, quid pro quo with Ukraine and China for his son Hunter, impeachment hoax, the takedown of General Flynn and the fact that his mentor, Robert Byrd, was a KKK Exalted Cyclop,
Representative Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) is professing that non-racist white people must essentially become activists in the event that they want to be considered culturally “good enough” in 2020.
Has she ever pondered what if people don’t care about being considered “good enough” by the Left? I mean, what does that mean, “good enough?” Conservatives are not the cause of her problems, and I think it’s fair to state that at this point that conservatives understand the Left will never consider them “good enough,” so what’s the point of this academic exercise?
This is radical leftist to the core. Who is this woman to determine what is culturally “good enough?”
The Massachusetts Democrat not too long ago spoke with comedian Samantha Bee (what could go wrong there, am I right?) in regards to the George Floyd protests, racism in America, and the role of “Karen” and “Becky” which are considered blanket terms for all white women moving forward.
“Everyone will say, ‘Well, you know, I’m not a racist,’” Pressley told the host during a recent appearance on “Full Frontal.” She added, “Yeah, great. That’s not good enough. What you need to be is anti-racist. And that means being intentional and deliberate and unapologetic and dismantling structural racism and systemic oppression, and not being afraid to call it what it is: white supremacy.”
Rather than reflecting on how much progress the country has made over the decades since the civil rights era, where overt racism has pretty much been eradicated in society, Pressley is saying that’s not enough.
Race hustlers like Pressley always give a fleeting glance at racial progress saying things like “Yes, there’s been progress… but we have a long way to go….” without ever discussing the actual progress. If the progress of anti-racism were talked about, wouldn’t it lead to even better solutions? Isn’t that what a national dialog on race should be all about? Wouldn’t that kind of discussion be productive?
They don’t want a discussion. They want to lecture America, and they’ll be damned if you try to have a discussion.
Yes, there will always be racist people from all walks of life, but you cannot claim that there hasn’t been progress.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.” For far too long black activists have been sucking up to the Democratic Party, which is the sole reason we have had to pass every civil rights bill in our history. Think about it. Every civil rights bill has been written and passed to remedy things the Democratic Party has done. Racist laws Democrats created at the state level had to be wiped out by federal civil rights acts.
Instead of attacking “white” America, Pressley would do the black community such a solid by placing blame where it really belongs: the Democratic Party. Her party.
“America” didn’t do all the horrible and unjust things to black people, that was the Democratic Party. There have always been people outside that party who have fought for equal rights under the law. The first thing the congresswoman could do to show she is serious about ending racism is to leave the Democratic Party, the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the Ku Klux Klan, and segregation. The party that to this day takes black voters for granted. In a phrase, she should just “Walk Away.”
The term white supremacy conjures up images of backwoods white folk whose parents were cousins, and they have a small militia complete with Klan memorabilia hanging on the walls of their pavilion right next to the Nazi flags and old photos of Dixiecrat politicians and segregationists like William Fulbright and Robert Byrd.
What Pressley is trying to do is claim that the societal structure of America is itself white supremacy. The irony that escapes her is that ideas like that, spoken aloud, are itself racist, in that she is claiming “systemic racism” which means it’s built into white America to be racist, which in turn means she is saying that all white people are inherently racist, and that itself is the very definition of racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group.
I’ve been working for David Harris Jr. for a few years now. He’s my boss, but I love him like my Christian brother. If what Pressley says is true, I would be a racist, and I cannot imagine that a racist would ever work for a successful black person. Her rhetoric just doesn’t add up.
It’s no longer enough to not be racist, to not be prejudiced against your fellow man because of the color of his or her skin. People like the congresswoman from Massachusetts believe that white people can be racist even if they don’t believe they are being racist. That’s what systemic racism means. It would be as ridiculous as someone saying black women from Massachusetts suffer from “systemic stupidity.”
The feckless [INSERT WORD HERE] Bee echoed Pressley’s racist sentiment by saying that “reluctant white people are going to be dragged into a more progressive future or rightfully dragged on Twitter.”
Pressley added, “Using your privilege in a tangible way [is necessary],” then said, “Doing more than liking and retweeting. OK? No more hashtags. … Let’s just do the work.”
Bee needs to be careful here, because in time, when all the other white people have been sufficiently “canceled,” Pressley will be coming for her as well. We’re already seeing that.
“White women, be useful. Use that privilege for good,” Bee urged.
The San Francisco school district is soon removing the names of historical figures off of school buildings, people who had connections to oppression, genocide, and slavery. One person on the list that’s a real head scratcher is Abraham Lincoln.
The deadline to get all the names submitted for consideration is Friday. But a deadline doesn’t really matter, because we learned during the 2020 election that deadlines mean nothing to Democrats. Oh yes, mark my words that 100% of the people involved in removing historical figures from buildings are Democrats, or some other leftist wokety woke woke political organization.
Can we get one thing straight? There is no pro oppression, genocide, or slavery group out there. Even the worst of the worst of any legitimate group, I don’t believe, are for these things. And these atrocities committed against black Americans, were committed almost 100% by Democrats throughout our history. Yes, there were some bad people as Republicans in our history, but not enough for a statistic. The Democrats pretty much owned it. It is my contention that had it not been for the Democratic Party America would have never needed a single Civil Rights bill. Democrats supported slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, and the welfare state that kept poor black families poor. The racist Dixiecrats were Democrats. The Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party with many elected officials leading groups of them. For goodness’ sake the Democrats made Senator Robert KKK Byrd the Senate Majority Leader twice! Byrd was a Kleagle in the Klan, whatever the hell that is, and he rose to the level of Exalted Cyclops, which when you think about it sounds as silly as the Flintstone’s “Grand Poobah.”
The man in charge of the effort was asked by the San Francisco Chronicle why Lincoln was on the list while some others are not.
“Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,” Jeremiah Jeffries, chairman of the committee to rename everything, told the paper. “Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names, and rhetoric within our public institutions.” He is also a first-grade teacher in San Francisco. I can only imagine the garbage that this man teaches those poor little kids in his classroom.
In other words, he didn’t really want to answer the question.
More from the Chronicle:
To many, Lincoln was one of the country’s greatest presidents, the Great Emancipator, a beloved historic figure as well as political mentor to his successors, including Barack Obama, who used the Lincoln Bible for his inauguration.
Yet the renaming of Lincoln High School was a slam dunk for the committee, which didn’t even discuss it, according to video of the meetings. The members of the committee, appointed by the school board, deemed whether a person’s actions or beliefs met the criteria for renaming, and moved on. The committee’s spreadsheet with notes on their research listed the federal treatment of Native Americans during his administration as the reason.
“The discussion for Lincoln centered around his treatment of First Nation peoples, because that was offered first,” Jeffries told the paper. “Once he met criteria in that way, we did not belabor the point.”
What’s really going on here is that these people are true Marxists. The Marxists throughout history have tried to completely fundamentally change a society by removing all historical figures and mentions of historical references of that country, because any historical references leftover will be a reminder to the people they’re trying to subjugate into Marxism of what used to be. Even the Marxists know that their subjugation into their system is horrible for most people of society. They don’t care, because they want to be in charge. Marxism is all about control of the state, run by those political elites, over everyone.
He added that Lincoln’s historical legacy is much overblown, and that even the Civil War wasn’t fought over slavery. I guess he missed that part of History class that teaches about the Emancipation Proclamation or that the Republican Party was the Abolition party.
“The history of Lincoln and Native Americans is complicated, not nearly as well known as that of the Civil War and slavery,” Jeffries told the Chronicle. “Lincoln, like the presidents before him and most after, did not show through policy or rhetoric that Black lives ever mattered to them outside of human capital and as casualties of wealth building.”
The problem with these types of radical Marxist nitwits is that unless you specifically come out and say, “This policy is for black people only,” they declare the policy as for white people only. You see, it’s not a good thing to include black Americans with everybody else these days to the woker crowd [wokest?]. You have to go out of your way to kiss their a** or you’re deemed a racist. Who wants to live in a society like that where the rules of societal decency are changed at the whim of radical lunatics?
Lincoln scholar and director of the Hunter College’s Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, Harold Holzer, said, “He saved the country from dividing and ruin.” He added, “He should be honored for it.”
Holzer added to the paper that looking at Lincoln’s treatment of Native Americans, he “was more progressive than most people. There was pretty rampant hostility, and I think Lincoln rose above it. Nobody is going to pass 21st century mores if you’re looking at the 18th and 19th centuries.”
More from the Chronicle:
Lincoln’s administration supported the Homestead Act of 1862 and transcontinental railroad, which led to the loss of Indigenous peoples’ land. Lincoln himself largely delegated the sometimes bloody response to Native American conflicts while focusing on the Civil War, according to historians.
But Lincoln, whose grandfather was killed by a Native American, oversaw the hanging of 38 indigenous warriors after a Santee Sioux uprising in Minnesota, but only after he personally reviewed the legal cases against the 303 men sentenced to death. He saved the lives of 265 Indigenous men.
Lincoln, historians say, was focused on the Civil War and therefore did little to change policies related to Native Americans, but had planned to.
“If we get through the war and I live, this Indian system will be reformed,” he said. He never got the chance.
Even though it was Lincoln who ultimately freed the slaves by ending slavery in America, he wasn’t woke enough for the clowns on the renaming committee. They added him to the list because of his treatment of Native Americans, people who used to be called Indians in the BW era (Before Woke). Apparently Lincoln’s treatment of Native Americans weighed as more negative than positive, so on the list he went.
But for the renaming committee, Lincoln’s treatment of Native Americans was more bad than good — and that’s why he made the renaming list, the paper said.
“We asked ourselves, ‘Did the name under consideration meet one or more of our criteria?’ If that name met criteria, they were put on the list,” Jeffries told the Chronicle.
These know nothings have no idea what it was like to live in those times. They have no understanding of context. Horrible things were done, because it was a cruel world back then. You can’t judge all historical figures by today’s standards. In the end, the Marxists are not judging people out of context. Rather, they are systematically removing all of America’s history, because you can’t move forward with a Marxist society if people remember their past.
The paper noted that this was the reason why Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) name wound up on the renaming list. You have to laugh, because liberal Democrats played into all the woke crap for a long time now, and they’re turning on them as well.
I would love to ask these nitwits simple question period are you the same person you were twenty years ago? Should you be held liable to things you thought, believed, or said twenty years ago? Look what these idiots did, they forced me to defend the likes of Diane Feinstein.
After all, Jeffries told the Chronicle, she “chose to fly a flag that is the iconography of domestic terrorism, racism, white avarice, and inhumanity towards black and indigenous people at the City Hall. She is one of the few living examples on our list, so she still has time to dedicate the rest of her life to the upliftment of Black, First Nations and other people of color. She hasn’t thus far, so her apology simply wasn’t convincing.”
The problem is that even Snopes, a left-wing fact-checking site, says that the allegation is unproven. It sounds like he woke crowd is just looking for any excuse to remove any historical icons from America while at the same time referring to anyone they disagree with as racist.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) would certainly not approve of this. This attitude of Jeffries and those like him turn MLK’s dream into a nightmare for our society.
